Hands down, the BEST pumpkin recipes ever, and with a healthy twist! From muffins, smoothies, pie and bars, there are options for all- Paleo, vegan, gluten free, sugar free and dairy free alternatives!
When the clock strikes midnight, this blog will turn into a pumpkin….
G’day guys! I am beyond stoked that ‘Pumpkin Week’ was welcomed with open arms and beta carotene glows! Since the first recipe was shared, it made my black heart skip reading all your emails and comments across social media at how excited you were to see pumpkin recipes.
I’m not going to lie- Amanda and I were both a little apprehensive in regards to the timing of it.
“Are we too early?”
“Are people still melting in the heat?”
Then again, there is no written rule about when pumpkin recipes can be shared and honestly, next year I will make a pumpkin ice cream, and share it in July.
To keep the pumpkin momentum going, I’ll be recapping the pumpkin recipes the two us shared this week. Not only that, I’ve collected some other delicious pumpkin recipes to make sure YOU are ‘Oompah Loompah’ status by the end of the month.
By the end of this week.
PS- You’ll be in for a treat from the both of us next week, pumpkin style!
Let’s jump into it!
